Today I am going to talk about which homeschool method I use & how or why did you chose?
When I first choose to homeschool my oldest two I had two criteria for homeschooling curriculum, one was it had to be close to free as possible. We could not afford homeschooling curriculum for both children like others had gone with. The second criteria was curriculum that reflected Godly values. So at that time I had found out about Old Fashioned Education. I loved it because it mostly used living books and was free. Now because I am on the Homeschool Review Crew, I get to review many different curriculum.
I happen to like using living books, where I can read quality books to the children. But I like textbooks too-as long as they reflect my religious view. My curriculum has been a mix lately and I love it. I want books that give them values of the olden days when the kids respected their parents, where everyone was nice to each other, how togetherness was celebrated, and how God was talked about.
I still don’t understand all the methods and names for the different types of curriculum but I choose what is best for my family and sometimes it’s one way and sometimes it’s a mix. It’s all depends on the year.

How do you choose your curriculum? What method do you use?
